I want a unicorn mane: how should I do it?
That’s it, it’s decided, you want the same hair as Tamara in Princess Starla and the magic jewelry! It’s great, but before you cover your scalp in Power Ranger poop, know that the path to the Avalon Knight’s mane is long and not without danger (burn, break, crack …) for your hair.
After weighing the pros and cons, you can take out your little chemist’s equipment and put on your ex’s favorite t-shirt: he’ll send the color 🤣🤣🤣🤣!
What hair color to choose according to my skin tone.
1) Light complexion: tone-on-tone coloring
When the skin is very pale, it is difficult to choose a suitable color. Too light, it can fade, and conversely, a color that is too dark tends to be unnatural and weigh down the face. The best option? Stay close to your base and bring a touch of light to it.
2) Fair skin? Choose a blonde coloring
If you have fair skin, your best ally will be blond! Soft, luminous and youthful, this color will flatter your complexion. In addition, blonde hair has a wide range of shades: Platinum Blonde, California Blonde, Ash Blonde, etc.
3) golden to matte complexions: focus on warm complexions
For tanned complexions, give way to deep tones like chestnut, ice chestnut or chocolate. Coppery colors like mahogany or Venetian blonde also work if you have light eyes: blue, green, or hazelnut. On the other hand, avoid blonde hair that is too light! They create too much contrast and can dull your skin tone.
Trendy pastel hair colors are not exclusive to unicorns.
The Unicorns generation comes from the term « Unicorn Hair » and is used whenever we talk about original hair dyes in pastel shades. Without necessarily referring to a particular style. For older girls, taking inspiration from the world of unicorns is just as interesting. The harmonies of hair colors become, at the discretion of the artist, a symphony of bolder contrasts with a more classic side.
– First step: discoloration
The first step towards a My Little Pony-like mane is fading. Yes, before you can apply the color of your choice, you need to bleach your hair as much as possible so that the red-orange and purple are as intense as possible. This step is mandatory, even if your hair is naturally brown, black, dark blonde, gray, …
We wick with shades of purple, pink, peach and blue, but still very clear. A discreet result for those who want to get into the crazy hair without overdoing it. Super positive point: the colors gradually fade to leave only the blonde. Convenient to avoid constant touch-ups. Do you want to try it? Go ahead, take some selfies: you’re sure to go viral.

Bleaching is always done on « dirty » hair to avoid burning the scalp. You can do this yourself with a specific product (there is often some in the « Hair Color » section of supermarkets) or go to a hair salon if you don’t feel up to it.
If you have very dark hair, I advise you to trust a professional hairstylist to avoid ending up with unsightly orange strands.
– Second step: The coloring
Before tackling the color, first wash your hair with a mild, silicone-free shampoo. Skip the « Conditioner » step and dry your mane with a hair dryer.
Once your hair is perfectly dry, you can apply petroleum jelly (or a very oily cream) to the contours of your hair to prevent the coloring from coming into contact with your skin (colored spots are rare but they can happen. and are very inconvenient to remove).
Then apply your color, starting at your hairline, using a wide brush, and spread it over your lengths with a comb. Leave to act for at least thirty minutes, as indicated in the instructions for use of your coloring product.
Once the exposure time has elapsed, rinse your hair with cold water (very important for fixing the color) and apply a nourishing mask to your lengths. You can then rinse your hair and style it as usual.
